What is Juvederm® Ultra?
Juvederm® Ultra is part of a family of products from Juvederm®, a leading name in cosmetic products. Juvederm® Ultra is an injectable “dermal filler,” which are all-natural fluids injected into the subdermal layer of the skin to keep it moisturized, smooth, supple, and healthy.
The Juvederm® Ultra dermal filler is a form of a hyaluronic acid gel. While the “acid” part sounds something you won’t put inside your body, it is actually a very beneficial substance found naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid has many functions in the body. It aids in healing wounds and repairing tissues. It acts as a lubricant and a cushion for joints, which is why it is used in treatments for osteoarthritis and joint pains.
But what makes hyaluronic acid a favorite in the cosmetic industry is its moisture retention capability. It is a hydrophilic or water-loving substance that attracts and keeps moisture. In the skin, it is used to treat wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Injecting this hyaluronic acid filler into the lips gives them volume and texture. The fluid physically fills the lips so that they that they are plump, while its moisture-retention properties keep the lips luscious, hydrated and firmer for a long time.
What are the Benefits?
As mentioned, Juvederm® Ultra is safe because it is made of a naturally-occurring substance that the body also produces, so there won’t be any complications. The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office and is convenient for those with busy schedules. It requires absolutely no surgery and little to no downtime! What could be better than that?
